Online Used Book Sale
The WPGS Library is housed in the Pennsylvania Department of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main Branch, in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The collection does not circulate.  Our thousands of volumes focus on Western Pennsylvania records, yet extend to nearby areas in Ohio and West Virginia and beyond. Each year we sort through our collection and weed out duplicates, older editions of current publications, and items that are outdated.  We usually offer these volumes for sale at our annual meeting in June.  However, this excludes many members and non-members who are not available to attend that meeting in person.  Our Online Used Book Sale will make these books accessible to everyone at a reasonable price, plus shipping and handling.
 
Members receive a 25% discount on all purchases. If you are a member of WPGS and wish to obtain member pricing, you must first log onto the website on the Members page and then come back to this Online Used Book Sale page.  
 
For your convenience, you can place an order online using PayPal for purchases, shipping, and handling.  To order by mail and pay with a personal check, please use the Printable Order Form.  If ordering by mail, please fill out an order form for each publication, submitting a separate check for each, so that we can return your payment if the publication has already been sold.  All orders are processed on a first-come, first-served basis, which is first based on the receipt of payment, then by the postmark date.
 
Check back often as new books will be added on a monthly basis.  As this is an all-volunteer effort and we are using USPS Library Mail rates for shipping, please allow at least two (2) weeks for order fulfillment.  All sales are final.  All books will be stamped, “Sold by the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society.”
